Shaman King Synopsis

A battle begins in Tokyo: the Battle of the Shamans, a competition that takes place every five hundred years in which shamans (those who can command spirits) face one another. Whoever wins this tournament is recognized as the "Shaman King" and can contact and control the Great Spirit, so that he can reform the world at will through his immense power.

During a night walk, Manta Oyamada meets his partner, the carefree Yoh Asakura, who invites him to join other friends to gaze at the stars that, to Manta's horror, turn out to be the ghosts of the local cemetery. However, it's also surprising that Manta can see them.
